Ayle N.S. - Ayle N.S recently completed a remarkable treble in the National Spikeball Competition. For the third year in a row Ayle captured a National Title in this Primary Schools Competition. This year it was the Mixed Team that added to the two Boys titles of 2010 and 2011. Ayle’s first title was in the Girls Competition in 2008.
In a fiercely competitive Mixed Competition featuring teams from Laois, Kildare, Kerry, Galway and Mayo played in Mary I, Ayle played a total of ten sets of spikeball. The final was a tense affair against Spa NS, the Kerry champions. Having won one set apiece Ayle triumphed in the deciding set 15-13 to record a famous win. Congratulations to all concerned, the coaches, Pat Buckley and Seán Ó hAonghusa, the supporters, the school squad members from the other school teams, the parents and the team members on the day. It was a wonderful all-round team performance.
Full Panel: Robert Quirke, Órnaith Hennessy, William Armshaw, Orla Maher, Julie Shortt, William Barry, Cian Ryan, Bob Purcell, Bláthnaid Cummins.
